Aren’t we all just itching to get out of the house lately? Here are some upcoming in-person trainings and conferences you won’t want to miss!

Trauma-Informed Support and Response to Domestic Violence – August 26, 2022

Trauma-Informed Support and Response to Domestic Violence (Related terms: Intimate Partner Violence, Dating Violence, Relationship Violence, Family Violence) provides a comprehensive, trauma-informed, assessment of Domestic Violence, highlighting an imbalance of power and a pattern of coercive behaviors as core components of this type of abuse. We will address societal norms, gender stereotypes, and myths that tend to blame the victim and contribute to rates of intimate partner and family violence. Participants will gain an understanding of barriers victims face when trying to end a relationship and learn available resources, while developing skills for assessing for domestic violence and referring victims and survivors to confidential advocates. Voices Against Violence uses a victim-centered approach that strives to place the focus of abuse on a perpetrator’s actions and empower survivors as the experts in their own lives as they find their path to safety and wellness.

Friday August 26, 2022 from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm at the Common Man Inn and Spa in Plymouth, New Hampshire. Presented by: Tina Schumacher, Trauma-Informed Training Specialist, Voices Against Violence. Registration is required. Lunch will be provided.

Books, Bites and Beyond! – “The Power of Vulnerability” Brené Brown – October 13, 2022

Brené Brown studies human connection — our ability to empathize, belong, love. In a poignant, funny talk, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity. A talk to share. BEYOND the Book – We will be discussing the dynamic Ted Talk presented by Brene Brown and following up with the link to go deeper with her book: “Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead.”

Dinner and Dessert will be served.

NHASP Fall Conference – October 14, 2022

School psychologists are a critical part of the school team charged with providing a continuum of evidence-based strategies to promote student resilience and enhance mental and behavioral health. This professional learning will discuss best practices in promotion of student complete mental health, using programs and practices within a multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS) that includes universal (Tier 1), targeted (Tier 2), and indicated/individual (Tier 3) mental health services.  A modern dual-factor model of complete mental health directs attention to both positive and negative indicators of well-being and problems, respectively. In addition to preventing and reducing mental health problems, enhancing subjective well-being is essential to ensure optimal student outcomes. Thus, this workshop will emphasize evidence-based positive psychology interventions for universal, small-group, and individualized supports. At the Tier 1 level, participants will learn programs and practices to promote all students and teachers’ subjective well-being, and reduce and prevent student emotional and behavioral problems. For Tier 2, participants will become familiar with example evidence-based options for time-limited programs for common mental health challenges. Planning for Tier 3, participants will consider how to coordinate with community resources and/or incorporate practices that address students’ gratitude, hope, optimism, and use of character strengths within individualized treatment plans. Participants will learn how a MTSS that promotes all students’ complete health contributes to academic success by addressing barriers to learning that stem from mental health problems.

Friday October 14, 2022 from 8:00 am – 3:30 pm. Grappone Conference Center in Concord, New Hampshire. 6 CE’s available.
